I have been looking for this recipe for over a year.
Many years ago... while visiting the State Fair of Texas... I picked up a recipe card for a German Chocolate Pound Cake. This was back in the late 1980's. And became my go to cake to make for events. Especially if I knew it had to travel in the car with me.
It makes an excellent dense moist cake. Adding on the traditional coconut/pecan icing, just makes it ridiculously good. And shows off how great this cake turns out.
Somehow my original recipe card, was lost. Which drove me crazy. I knew it was a cake recipe, from a well know baking product. I was constantly looking at older recipes for it.
It turns out... it was from Adam's Extract!
I knew it had real buttermilk... and butter extract in the recipe. I rarely used butter extract. And had it for this cake recipe. Anywho.. those were the key ingredients, I was looking for as I hunted for the one I had used for years. I am so thrilled that all those hours roaming on Pinterest... were not wasted! :)
